Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Mary Quattlebaum
This lyrical letter addressed to "dear baby" recounts the wonders in store for the newly arrived infant. The structure is simple and age appropriate. Each double-page spread focuses on two senses and two concrete examples: "You will hear the wind in the trees and feel cool raindrops," for example. Little ones will be charmed by the soothing rhythm and soft sounds as well as by the accompanying photos of babies and things such as a fluffy rabbit and orange flower. The vivid colors, expressive baby faces and uncluttered backgrounds enable developing eyes to discern and focus on the figures in the photos. A perfect new-baby gift. Reviewer: Mary Quattlebaum
